Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s “Inherit the Wind” will be performed by the Winters Theatre Company in March.
Based on the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial,” the play delves into the teaching of evolution in public school—an act against the law in Tennessee in 1925. The play examines concepts relevant and under
attack today—the right to teach science as fact and not disputable opinion and how people respond when they believe their faith is being attacked. As the prologue to the play implies, “the play can
happen at any time and at any place.”
The production will open on Friday March 8 th and run through Sunday March 24 th ; Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30pm, and Sunday shows at 2pm at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Avenue in
Tickets are $15 for the gala opening on Friday March 8 th , which includes cheesecake, champagne, coffee, and water. The show on Saturday March 9 th is a benefit for Winters Friends of the Library; tickets for that show are $25, and include one drink (beer or wine) and dessert.
